Trijicon Introduces NEW Ascent® Riflescopes for the Tactical Shooter

Trijicon Introduces NEW Ascent® Riflescopes for the Tactical Shooter

Wixom, MI — Trijicon is proud to introduce the new Ascent series of riflescopes, a Brilliant Aiming Solution designed for the tactical or competitive shooter. Built with the same military-grade construction and premium glass that has earned Trijicon a world-class reputation, the Ascent series features two different variable power options.

The Trijicon Ascent riflescope is ideal for elevating shooter skills among tactical applications and is available as a 1-4x24 or 3-12x40. The Ascent delivers fully multi-coated broadband anti-reflective glass for excellent light transmission and brilliant edge-to-edge clarity. With a mid-range price point, these models are a lightweight addition to any tactical platform and come with a matte finish and tactical knurling for responsive adjustments. An easy focus-eyepiece and extra-wide field of view allow for maximum situational awareness and fast scanning, detection, and engagement of targets.

The Ascent features easy-grip low-capped adjusters that deliver crisp, precise windage and elevation adjustments in ¼ MOA clicks, with up to 100 MOA of adjustment in the 1-4x24 and 70 MOA in the 3-12x40 model. Capped turrets prevent accidental shift of zero, while the versatile magnification ranges are an excellent choice for high-volume range days or competition. Likewise, the models come with an intuitive MOA-based BDC Target Holds second focal plane reticle for quick target acquisition and shot placement.

Trijicon Ascent riflescopes use an ultra-lightweight design that conquers the elements while retaining rugged construction that stands up to Military Standard testing. At 15.9 oz. (1-4x24) and 17.8 oz. (3-12x40) and built on a 30mm main tube, the Ascent delivers exceptional optical performance without weighing down the rifle platform. 

Backed by The Science of Brilliant® testing methodology that Trijicon takes to every product, Ascent riflescope models are Alaska-to-Africa Tested to ensure performance from -20°F to 140°F, giving shooters supreme confidence in any climate. Each model is Solid Zero Tested and subjected to 5,000 rounds of heavy cartridge testing to ensure no reticle shift, while Drop Testing guarantees that every bump and bruise won’t result in a warranty claim. Ascent models are Shock & Vibration Tested to take on recoil and the abuse of the field without failure. Finally, all models are Immersion Tested and dry-nitrogen filled to eliminate internal fogging in even the harshest environments.

MSRP:    $650 – $699
